MTA hasn't hired cleaners in years the list was short. The contract cleaners was a backhand deal signed by the union during the pandemic. There was a mass exodus of people who retired out of fear of catching COVID. They are starting to hire for every title. Compared to how they did it before with cleaners which was to call people off of a list from a different job.

How was the work overall

The job is different by department if you go Stations vs Car Equipment.

Dumb question but Do cleaners get drug tested for weed?


UrbanAssault t1_itvbvy8 wrote

i believe they do specially for safety sensitive titles, but random drug test are rare once your a cleaner unless you give them a reason to send you down for one.

Which is one is more simple? Also what did you mean with your other comment “the list was short”?

The cleaning is somewhat simple what changes is the work environment depending on dept. Cant really speak on stations but its somewhat self explanatory, Car Equipment your in a maintenance shop/yard or at a terminal station. When I was hired there were just under 900 cleaners, I think they've hired up to 12XX.
